    « Excellent hotel for business travellers »

    I really appreciate a hotel that goes out of its way to make you feel welcome, the rooms are bright with lots of natural light and a great workspace. Always treat yourself to their excellent restaurant with a chef who comes up with amazing daily specials that are filled with goodness. All staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated

    « Gem of a Hotel on a Beautiful Spot »

    Was here for 2 days business and was really surprised on the amazing location of this hotel. Right on the waterfront with access to walking and bike path and very close to the downtown core. Very welcoming and enjoyable staff. Restaurant food was very good. I will return back on business stays and will definately book a relaxing pleasure stay.

    « FIRST STAY HERE, FIRST RATE »

    super clean, well-kept, pleasant helpful staff, and unusual for a hotel, an excellent restaurant! lots of handicapped parking, lot is well-maintained. Only thing missing is a pool. Keep up the good work.

    « Best view in Owen Sound area! »

    Right on Georgian Bay, there is a great view from the restaurant and patio. Walking trails adjacent to the hotel along the bay. Walking distance to town. Great restaurant and rooms. Small fitness centre with hot tub and some equipment.

    « Hotel and Restaurant Extrordanaire well worth the money »

    Just an overnight and glad to see that they still are the best around!! The service at the front desk both checking out and in was delightful and the restaurant is a hidden gem in Owen Sound!! Service by Jess was great and the food again outstanding!! THE best Onion soup in the world and burger to die for!! Found the internet very fast for a hotel making up and downloading quick and simple!! Can't wait for our annual fishing trip this year! Great job guys and gals!!

    « nice place »

    nice place... clean, good location and good customer service. if there was a free breakfast as advertised they need to do more to promote it. no mention in lobby and the hotel book in room only said breakfast was available for purchase? mixed messages and hopefully not false advertising.. only complaint was careless mixup at checkin... gave me wrong room number and key so when i went to room it was already occupied.. thank goodness the person inside was blowing their hair dry or else it would have bern awkward and embarrassing. desk clerk didnt understand what was wrong and was going to call room until i pointed out on my registration paper he gave me a different room number. need to be more attentive and careful.

    « Restaurant meal excellent »

    We did not stay in the hotel. We had a meal from the Savour Owen Sound menu and all four of us thought the meal and presentation was excellent. We've made plans to go back on a Friday to check out their Friday night specials!

    « Quiet and Clean Hotel »

    Stayed here for a hockey tournament and found the hotel was very clean and well maintained. Upgraded to a king suite and found it had lots of room to spread out (fireplace was nice touch). Rooms have a mini fridge and microwave. Restaurant in the hotel is ok but very pricy for burgers and stuff.

    « Good Hotel with a view »

    Planned a trip into Ontario with the wife. Spent 2 nights here. Very nice stay. Had the large suite with a view of the river and sound. Everything was comfortable. This hotel is close to downtown and close to all the waterfalls in and around town. The is a lot to do in Owen Sound, and The Best Western added to our experience. Check it out.

    « Good hotel for Owen Sound »

    I spent 5 nights here while in OS for work. The room was clean and a good size. The bathroom was also clean and maintained. The bed was a little hard for my liking but you can sleep in it. I tried the hot tub out 1 night and it was just a warm tub. Not hot at all. The hotel would be a nice place to stay in the summer being right on the lake but it is in an industrial area so not much to do around it. Tried the in hotel restaurant and the service was good but, like the warm tub, none of the food was hot. The staff were friendly and professional. It was a place to stay but a little pricey for what I have gotten elsewhere.

    « New Years party with friends »

    Good food, great DJ , one person in our group had to send her beef dinner back twice. Other than that it was a great party. We would come back to this location next New Years Eve..All of the staff were friendly and helpful!

    We have never been to Owen sound before but wanted to snowmobile in this area. I called to inquire about snowmobiling amenities in the area and Ken was extremely helpful. The hotel was nice and clean. beds were comfortable, and the staff was friendly. I recommend this hotel and will be staying there again.

    « Disappointing to say the least »

    Booked into this hotel for 2 nights. Went to the on-site restaurant for supper last night. The food and service was great. Tonight go down to have dinner and find out that because of the hockey game next door reservations have taken up all the tables. Expressed our displeasure with the restaurant and front desk about not being advised that we needed reservations and neither the restaurant nor front desk was helpful at all. Perhaps in the future the front desk should let their out of town guests know in advance that reservations are needed when the hockey game is on.

    « Quiet Waterfront Locale and Delightful Staff »

    As a Best Western member we took advantage of a promotion that allowed us to upgrade to a quality room with a "view" (hotel located on and overlooking a large bay on Georgian Bay). It was a lovely escape from our heavy snow and much colder December than usual. Staff are excellent. Food was very tasty in on-site restaurant. An enjoyable stay and respite between Christmas and the New Year.

    « Great spot in Owen Sound »

    I have used the Best Western in Owen Sound many times, including for a long term stay for work several years ago. This winter the family used it, 6 rooms in all, over Christmas while we visited elderly parents. Great staff, even eggs benedict for Christmas morning! The staff was busy but quick and polite. We came back for the Christmas buffet and it was excellent. They also took very special care of our elderly guest in a wheel chair. Very helpful and very accommodating to a table change to make life easier for her. Thank you. We also had our dog with us, the dog friendly rooms are on the ground floor with great access to let them out. We also used this hotel for our first night after getting married in Owen Sound and for the morning breakfast. That was also great service.

    « Consitent High Quality Stays »

    Friendly reservation process with helpful staff. Easy and quick check-in despite being busy. Excellent room with large window with view and very clean. Quality bed, quiet, great sleep. Internet issue was quickly resolved. Again, friendly, quick and trouble free check-out. Hope to stay again when in the area. Highly recommendable.

    « Top end on the Best Western chain »

    Great place to stay to enjoy the Festival of Lights or an Attack game (which you can walk to). Great view of the Bay if you are out for a stroll. Rooms are big and comfortable. Clean, quiet location. Price might be a little high for some, but it is the best digs in town.

    « Festival Of Lights »

    Stayed at the B/W Inn on the Bay and took in the Festival of Lights during our stay on December 2-3, 2017. Very clean hotel with pleasant and thoughtful staff. Also took breakfast on Sunday morning and all eight of us enjoyed it. Each one in our party ordered something different. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Too Expensive »

    This hotel, which is a bit tired is way over - priced for what you get, especially at this time of year. The sliver of a view you get from many of the rooms just doesn't cut it. The room is an average room with sheets that are not fresh and crisp feeling, no in room safe that I could see, the bare necessities for amenities in the bathroom, and some rust looking spots on the ceiling. Not sure where the rate for $139 comes from but my room with tax ended up at$183. There is no real pool, plenty of parking which might be the real feature of the hotel. I didn't eat there because I felt the prices for the food were a touch on the high side. I think they have to lower their prices or significantly enhance the rooms before I would stay there again. Location, location, location is what it's all about but it has to be at a reasonable price which this was not. O

    « Great service »

    Enjoyed staying at Best Western in Owen Sound. I imagine it is lovely in the summer with the view of the bay. Comfortable room, great customer service, nice restaurant. Stayed overnight for a business trip and visited Harrison Park Festival of Lights. The town is decorated beautifully for Christmas.

    « Okay »

    Rooms are Okay, nothing special considering the price but I guess you are paying for being along the water. Stayed there as it's close to the office and staff is friendly. Restaurant has great supper and breakfast meals haven't had a chance to have their lunch so unable to comment on that.

    « Your best choice in Owen Sound »

    Beautiful view of Owen Sound Bay, Centrally located beside the Bay shore Community Centre & Arena, home of the Owen Sound Attack . A great place to stay, Rooms are clean, Food in the restaurant is tasty and reasonably priced, coffee is hot and plentiful and the beer cold.

    « Pleasant stay »

    We spent 2 nights here on our Bruce Peninsula Tour with our dog. We know that Best Western are pet friendly and we were not disappointed. The room was typical BW, clean, spacious, clean and big bathroom. Because we had a pet, it was on the ground floor and close to an exit. Perfect. We dined twice at the lounge and were impressed with the menu they offer!! Very friendly staff throughout. The hotel sits right on the bay and on a very nice trail along the shore. Plenty of parking spaces, close to all major amenities.

    This is an excellent hotel,but breakfast was a disappointment.Would be wiser to have it elsewhere - there are lots of good breakfast spots.Having just returned from a holiday in Virginia,we found the contrast marked.

    We stopped here on a whim. What a great call! A very inviting, full amenity hotel. We had supper in the lounge & breakfast in the restaurant & both were outstanding. The views of the area are awesome. The staff was quick to give us the information about the area sites & activities. We will be back.

    « Bruce Peninsula trip »

    After a long day on the road, including a 2 hour trip on the ferry, we were ready to put our feet up for a rest. The gentleman who checked us in was quick, efficient and made us feel at home. Beds were comfy for a quick refresher nap as well as for an 8 hour sleep. Bathroom was clean, lots of water pressure for my wife's long hair in the shower, and had a nice heat lamp. Nice upscale restaurant but casual restaurant on premises where the level of service made us feel like special guests. Thanks Best Western !

    « Wonderful Clean Hotel »

    I had the pleasure to stay at this hotel during my visit to Bruce Peninsula. I was so surprised at the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel. It is in a great location. I think that all rooms come with a fridge, but only some rooms have microwaves. Check for online description of each room. As a guest, one can take leisurely strolls along the water by the hotel. The staff is very friendly. When I return to this area, this will be my hotel of choice.

    I have just stayed at the Best Western on the Bay for 3 nights. The customer service is exceptional- always go out of their way to meet your needs.I stayed in a suite which met my work needs and had a great view. The rooms are updated and large in size. The on site restaurant had a wide selection and the food quality is good. Th location of this property is exceptional as it is on the bay leading to Lake Huron. It is also a short walk to downtown and right beside the Bayshore where the Owen Sound Attack play.

    Very beautiful hotel and well maintained hotel in a scenic part of Owen Sound. All amenities are very good. Staff was excellent. Only issue I has was for the cost of the room breakfast should have been included as does most other B/W and other hotel chains. This hotel was located on one of the bays on Lake Huron. Lovely walking path just outside the hotel. Hotel is not walking distance to other restaurants although the hotel dining area is well appointed with good food.

    « Wonderful stay!! »

    I chose this hotel from reviews and was not disappointed. I made reservations for one night but we arrived a day early and they allowed me to pay for only room they had Executive suite and complimentary upgrade for the second night so I didn't have to move. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. This location is great with the lake behind it. You can go walking around the lake or just sit on the benches and take in the sunset. The rooms were extremely clean and smelled great. I have to also comment on how comfy the beds and sheets were as I am a sheet snob and it met my approval. I also love that it had the Bishops restaurant inside the hotel when you don't feel like going out.

They also allowed us to park our motorcycles under their canopy for the night. A+A+A+

    « One of the best! »

    This hotel has everything including a great view and fantastic, full-service restaurant! (Room service is also available). The room itself was spacious and well-equipped.WiFi was better than many other hotels. I would definitely stay here again. My only (very minor) quibble was the lack of variety with the breakfast menu, but all food was delicious. Love the location, right on Georgian Bay.

    « Always consistent »

    I have been going to this best western for over 6 years. I think I have well over 100 nights stay there. They have been consistent in quality, care and customer satisfaction. They not only listened when I had a problem but even asked if there was any way they could make things better. But most importantly they did. The desk staff are good friends to talk with. They are quick and accurate in check in and check out. They treat you like family. The rooms are always perfectly cleaned. This review comes from over one hundred nights with not one bad experience. I'm a business customer and I stay in many hotels. The one is special. It is top notch. No it's not 5 star but it is the best in class. Also the location is stellar. Right on the water. You just feel the stress melting just listening to the waves.

    beautiful view and room is clean and staffs are friendly. told no swimming pool by stuff when asked, but older kids noticed it is in basement and used it, not sure why. price is a little high for 2.5 star(I believe) besides these, room is clean, restaurant on site, convenient shopping, touring, staffs welcomed us and introduced the sightseeing places when asked. Gym is kind of small and smells. overall experience is very good. beautiful view of the Bay, and community center with area besides the parking lot.

    « Lovely place to stay, but getting pricey »

    We have stayed at the Inn on the Bay for 5 years in a row now; however, we won't be going back for a couple of reasons. The staff at the front desk are nice but not overly friendly. The prices of the rooms have gone up, which is fine, but amenities have gone down. When we checked in, we sat for 30 minutes waiting on a trolley to take our luggage to our room and one was not available so we carried our luggage/bags to the second floor. We were informed that the room we booked no longer includes a continental breakfast (which it did when we booked in Feb 17). The food we purchased was mid range in price. You get a decent portion and coffee/tea was included with the meal. There was complimentary coffee/tea at the restaurant entrance over breakfast hour, which is nice, but the tea water was only warm and the coffee was empty on two occasions. Staff was very kind to refill it when asked, but once again brought out warm water for the tea. Service at the restaurant was excellent and attentive. Our room appeared quite clean and stocked when we arrived. We did find the one comforter had some sort of stain on it that appeared to be washed out blood? The pillows have always lacked in comfort. The sofa (sofa bed) was very mushy when we sat on it. The springs in it were not supportive and we are not big people. The hot tub had too much chemicals in and stung our eyes. Overall, we must say the Inn on the Bay is lovely as far as location and cleanliness. The Manager is amazing and helps out staff wherever and whenever he can. Kudos to the Manager. The jury is out as to whether we would return given higher prices and less amenities.

    We stayed for the Owen Sound Salmon Spectacular. Hotel is located right on the Bay. We were able to walk along the water front. I brought my two small dogs and we had a very positive experience as we have never stayed in a hotel that accepted pets. The Restaurant was excellent. I would go there to eat even if I was not staying in the hotel it was that good.

The hotel is well kept, the Bay View rooms are beautiful and the surrounding area is fantastic. The WiFi in the rooms is great!

    « Summer Vacation »

    We really enjoyed the hôtel site, water view from the restaurant terrasse, from the inside whirpool & the path with garden to walk around. Staff very nice! Very clean! The only bad thing was the cuisine, I was served an undercook burger, the waitress handellled it very professionaly but the fact remain that it was dangerous for my health. My family where served other plates that where very good. But I did not go back there to eat.

    « Excellent stay, every time »

    I can honestly say I have never had a negative experience at the hotel. We stay here a few times a year and each time is great. From the front desk to the staff in the dining room, the customer service is professional, yet relaxed. Always a smile and a moment to make the guests feel welcome.

    « A great spot for a quiet summer weekend »

    Staff were friendly and accommodating. The best part of the hotel is definitely the view of the bay. Otherwise, the neighbourhood is nothing to seek out. A suite includes a fridge, small kitchen sink, counter, cupboards, dishes for 4 and a microwave. While we ate most meals out it was great to drink early morning coffee and/or eat snacks in the facility without having to go out. We would definitely return.

    Excellent hotel. Front staff helped us find the falls and Tim Hortons.. Lovely room. Would stay here if back in town. Easy to find. Had a view of the water from our room. Check out was easy. The restaurant was very good. The restaurant staff made sure we had every thing that we needed.

    « It was a good stay »

    Okay, lets start with the picky negatives. I personally found it to be overpriced for what you get but in tourist country you get charged for the location first and the hotel second. I also don't like the concept of temporarily adding a hundred dollars to your card "just in case you buy something from room service". That having been said, the hotel is in a lovely setting and is well maintained with more than adequate parking. The grounds are well kept, the staff professional and the hotel clean and in excellent repair. The restaurant has an outdoor patio that overlooks Colpoys bay and the sunset and is adjacent to municipal paved walking paths as well as a multi boat launch ramp. Room amenities vary by price with a broad range of choices. We had a standard double and it was well appointed with a remarkably deep bath tub. It was immaculately clean and the beds offered the two firmness choices that seem to have taken over the hotel industry. Over all, it was a good stay in a comfortable and scenic location and if you don't worry about economics it is a recommended stay. I would use it again without hesitation if I were ever in Owen sound.

    « Two day weekend policy »

    I would assume that they're always fully booked on the weekend because they have this strange policy that you have to book for two nights to get a room. They let you bring your pet Into the hotel. I hope that they have pet free rooms. You probably should ask for a pet free room. We saw a dog pee in the front lobby. Disgusting. The hot tub is nice. But the "pool" is just a very large hot tub with a nice warm temperature. We had special requests for the Eggs Benedict ? make sure the egg white is cooked or make sure the English muffins toasted ? these requests were ignored. Otherwise the Eggs Benedict was good. I asked that they remove my credit card from their files and they refused saying that it was policy. I will be following up on this.

    « Overpriced - beware breakfast NOT included »

    The pool is not a pool, it is a glorified indoor hot tub. Breakfast is not included in price. Paid $215. for king bed suite, Marriott in Kincardine is $165. for king bed suite, indoor pool and includes breakfast and it is brand new. BW in Owen Sound needs to be updated and needs to have a price reality check

    « Friendly, spacious, clean and comfortable »

    We stopped here before taking the ferry to Manitoulin Island and enjoyed the hotel, and the environs. Our room was clean and large, the bed was comfortable and the included breakfast hit the spot. We really enjoyed our stay in Owen Sound at this hotel.

    « Comfortable but noisy »

    Stayed here a night and the room was clean and spacious enough for our needs. The breakfast was ok, what you would expect from a chain hotel. The biggest complaint would be the noisy AC unit, the hall noise and the garbage collection early on the morning which was really noisy. So, not the best sleep.

    « Peaceful Location on the Bay »

    Clean spacious room, can walk into town along the bay but it's a good 20 minute walk. We stayed here as a base for a day trip to Bruce Peninsula National Park and Tobermory. If you enjoy art there is a nice Tom Thompson art gallery in Own Sound. Excellent restaurant nearby...Kettles! Great home style cooking at a very reasonable price, we ate there twice.

    « Location and quality »

    This hotel is centrally located, very well maintained and it's just right by the lake. However, the breakfast should have been a buffet one instead of being served during the summer as there are lots of families with children. My grandson who was with me opted for Arby's instead of eating at the hotel. It was too formal for him as it was not fun sitting at a table and being served.

    « Nice Surprise »

    Everything about this hotel made our stay a pleasant one. From the friendly staff to the spacious rooms.

Don't leave the table before you've tried one of their delicious deserts. We know we'll be back!!

    « Best Western - Owen Sound »

    Terrific place, quality of room was high and the staff were quite friendly. Location is perfect being near the water. Food is always first rate and everything works. We are repeat customers so I guess we continue to be "convinced" but when looking for someplace to stay in Owen Sound, it can't be beat. Close to downtown as well. Also, right in the heart of tourist country which is a major plus. And if one needs directions or further information the staff is always accommodating.

    We booked this hotel at the last minute and were very happy with our choice. The hotel was clean and our view from the suite overlooked the water.

    « Slipping a little »

    We always stay here when visiting family in Owen Sound, and it has always been wonderful. This stay was good, but not quite the high standard we've come to expect from them. Our room was okay, but we were obviously put in one of the standard ones, possibly because we arrived very late in the evening. No complimentary breakfast any more, and the menu options are limited, and obviously more expensive. The TV remote wasn't working properly, and the night manager forgot about us. I finally fixed the problem myself by using the buttons on the side of the tv. That was unusual for this hotel.

    « Nice hotel, too bad about the noise »

    Very disappointed in Room 257, a king suite, situated in a wing of the hotel close to the heating and ventilating system on a nearby roof. Noise so loud we couldn't sleep and had to retreat to a sofa bed at the back of the suite. Not even earplugs helped in this poorly designed arrangement. Never again! Too bad because otherwise this is a nice hotel in a great location.

    « Outdated Hotel »

    This hotel is very outdated. We have stayed twice over the last year, and will not be returning. There is a distinct odour throughout the hotel which is unpleasant. We had items from the previous guests left in the room which were missed by housekeeping. They advertise as being dog friendly, however they do not allow dogs on the patio of the restaurant. We were told the pool and hot tub were being shut down early due to safety concerns (even though we were sitting in the hot tub, they would not elaborate on the concerns). The beds are quite worn. We were forced into a 2 night minimum stay as they explained that is their policy. 4 star pricing, 1 star experience.

    « Wonderful surprise »

    We loved this hotel. It was very well maintained, spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and very professional.

We would love to go back there again.

    « Family Wedding »

    We booked a room to stay when we came to a wedding at this venue. Check in was smooth, and no surprises when we showed up. We received a good deal on the room because we were there for a wedding. The suite was just as it was outlined, and the view of the bay was beautiful. The wedding went off without a hitch, the staff were well trained in their roles. The lady, who appeared to be in charge, was on top of things, she managed the staff respectfully, and got things done very efficiently. The food was very good, and people were moved through the buffet line very smoothly. They had a great bartender who was very personable and she was fast at drink preparations. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest that you stay here, great insulation between rooms, I heard nothing from our neighbours, and no hall noises. Also if you are planning a big party event, two thumbs up for their planning coordinator.

    « Drunk Housekeeper/ good reception »

    The Hotel is beautiful, clean rooms, lots of smiles. The only problem I had was I asked my room keeper for some extra shampoo and she was drunk. I was appalled to see this as I had my children with me. I chose this hotel because I read a lot of reviews about how child friendly it was, but I was taken aback when she smelled of booze. I don't know if it was because it was on the 3rd floor and security entrance for a quiet zone meant no children normally. On July 1st weekend you would think that the hotel would make sure the staff were not still drunk in the work place. I will never stay here again because if they don't care who cleans our room how am I suppose to feel safe with the staff even if the reception is spectacular and accommodating.

    « Super Stay »

    Wow! What a great experience starting with reception! Made reservations as a couple (King bed and sofa pullout) and,at the last minute, added our adolescent grand daughter. On arrival, Ken looked at the situation and said " we can do better!" That's an understatement! AMAZING service!! No wonder they call themselves BEST Western. As a rewards member, we even got a gift bag with bottled water and a Skor bar. The room was on a "private" floor (entry by room key) overlooking the Bay, had 2 Kings, a gas fireplace (not used),3 comfortable arm chairs, very quiet AC with easy to use thermostat, a coffee maker,mini frig, microwave and free WiFi. I was absolutely delighted!! The hotel has lots of outdoor space. The restaurant has an outdoor patio. A path along the water leads to a lovely public garden and well equipped playground which is great for kids. The only things missing are a pool and the free breakfast you come to expect. There are packages which do include breakfast but you pay for it one way or another. In spite of this, I would return in a heart beat and hope that Ken was on duty!

    « Nice Grounds - Overall Good Stay »

    We stayed only for one night for our honeymoon. We thought the grounds were just beautiful :) However we ordered the jacuzzi and fireplace room - and just for others know that the jacuzzi in our room was not a jacuzzi but in fact an Air Tub - which are two very different tubs (Air tubs just shoot air up and the water becomes quite cold quickly.. whereas Jacuzzi tubs use jets and power water through them to provide a massage). Also for the amount of money we paid for one night we thought that it would be a view of the Bay but instead we were looking at two picnic tables where I am assuming staff go to smoke. Everything else was nice. I would recommend going there - just a few pointers to ask for before you go :)

    « Would recommend whole heartedly! »

    My husband and I wanted to stay in the Sauble Beach area for our 21st Anniversay. When this hotel popped up in my search I was quite impressed. From booking, to check in (we were 2 hours early!) during our stay and check out... everything was fantastic. I do recommend though if you want your room cleaned thoroughly during your stay to make sure you note that on the card, otherwise the hotel was amazing. Great view, great location, lots to do in the area. We even made it to Sauble Beach!

    « Owen Sound's best Option »

    Even though this hotel is the best option to stay in Owen Sound some upgrades are required. The Window AC system is creating noise and smell and therefore has to be switched of during the night in order to sleep. the carpets are very used and dirty. However, the hotel and rooms are clean.

    « Best hotel in Owen Sound but needs updating »

    This hotel is fine for staying for a night or two but seemed a bit pricey for what it is. There was a concert on the weekend we stayed so one wonders if $188 is the normal price. We checked out a little late and when I tried to wash my hands before leaving, there was no water whatsoever.

    « TOO MUCH NOISE TO SLEEP!!!! »

    It seems that this hotel has no rules for quiet hours, our room was first floor, a lot of noise near to the office and restaurant. When we tried to sleep the people in the next room arrived at 11 pm to drink and talk so loud. Finally about 1am we were in our pajamas asking front desk if they could be quiet and we could sleep. The next night there was a wedding party, this was close to our room. Two nights without sleep, what a nightmare we were very glad that we only booked for 2 days. We are fascinated to go to this city but next time we will look for another hotel.!!!

    I have stayed at this location several times over the past few years, for business purposes, and have always had an excellent experience with the front desk staff, as well as the service and staff at the restaurant - Bishops Landing - They have several delicious Gluten Free items on the menu, and are clearly marked. The staff is very accommodating, and were able to alter a dish for my dietary restriction.

    « We would recommend »

    We really enjoyed our stay at Best Western in Owen Sound. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The attached restaurant is definitely recommended for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The service at the restaurant is a bit slow but if you have to be somewhere at a certain time, they will definitely try to accommodate you. The only negative thing we would say about this hotel is their toilets are very powerful and tend to splash when flushed. As a result we had to buy some cleaning supplies and do some extra cleaning. Also just to make everyone aware, they have a large hot tub (feels like bath water) and a small hot tub (with hot water). It would have been nice if this hotel had a pool and hot tub rather then the 2 hot tubs. Overall we would recommend this hotel.

    « Standard hotel with a beautiful view »

    Attended this hotel for a wedding this past weekend. It's a standard best western, large, clean rooms. The lobby decor is a little outdated, but very tidy, and the staff were professional. Obviously the best thing is the gorgeous view of the bay, there's a nice stretch a green grass with some beautiful walking paths behind the hotel. I would say that if there's an event going on you should try to be on a higher floor, the music at the wedding could be heard pretty clearly up on the second floor.

    « Odor in room and in room breakfast »

    The first room I checked into had a bad odour and the fridge was so loud. It would have kept me up all night. Thank goodness I could change rooms. The fellow who helped me change rooms was nice. However, the other issue was when I called down to ask to inquire about the breakfast menu for in-room breakfast in the morning she told me I had to go down to the restaurant to see the menu in the morning. Well, that defeated the purpose of me having to be on conference calls in the room in the morning and I didn't have time to go down to the restaurant - The whole point of in-room breakfast. This hotel doesn't have a breakfast menu in the room guest book or a door hanger for breakfast.

    « Staff are Excellent but Could Improve on Amenities »

    I've stayed here for several business trips and believe this to be one of the best hotels in the area. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the staff are accomodating and pleasant. A couple downfalls were in the amenities. The cable is choppy, the restaurant is very overpriced, the included breakfast is extremely limited (and will inevitably result in paying $5-$10 extra for a decent breakfast), and the fitness center is very small (only 4 machine and only 2 were in working condition during my last stay). If they could improve in a couple of these areas, I'd give the hotel 5 stars.

    Whilst in the UK this hotel kept popping up on my Trip adviser, so we thought we would visit whilst on our trip. There is no question this is a very nice hotel, clean, quiet but very busy and with a monopoly as there is nothing around it! Great parking and great location and is obviously well used...but as a tourist there is nothing in the hotel about the area, which tells you it is here for a specific reason i.e. sports. The price is high for a hotel which is not in a busy town or tourist resort. All that said we were well looked after and our room was lovely with a view of the Lake after we requested to be moved from the first room offered. Flat screen TV, wifi and a lovely shower. Just the oddest location!

    My husband and I spent this past Thanksgiving weekend at Best Western Inn on the Bay. We checked in on Saturday the 8th and found our room quite clean and comfortable. We have stayed here before and had no complaints. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. The restaurant, Bishop's Landing is comfortable with a great view of the bay. I have celiac disease and have found the serving staff along with the kitchen staff very knowledgable about my need to be gluten free. Our server Melissa was friendly and provided great service. The continental breakfast is included in the price of the room and is great for everyone. I bring my own gluten free bread with me when I travel but I found fruit, eggs and yogurt available for me. My husband on the other hand, loves making the homemade waffles. I was calling him the "Waffle Whisperer" by the time we had to check out on the 11th. Our last dinner on Sunday, Monday, the 10th was served by Andrea who was very helpful when I asked about the gluten free seafood thermidor. My pasta was delicious and my husband's steak was cooked to perfection. With this past weekend being Thanksgiving, the restaurant was extra busy and the staff were always courteous and helpful even though they were running off their feet! Thank you to Megan who changed reservation times for us and kept our coffee mugs full on Tuesday morning before we had to pack up and leave. The hotel is in a great location with a lovely path along the waterfront. The fall colours in the Owen Sound area are spectacular. We can't wait to go back again!

    « Impressed »

    When booking this hotel, we thought it was a bit pricey. However it was definitely worth the few extra dollars. I note one reader found the rooms dated. I was informed that all rooms have been updated. We were located in the tower which I understand is a new addition. Our room 365 had two king size beds and a fireplace. The room was large, well appointed with a comfortable bed, quality sheets and towels. Rooms 365 and 465 have the best view of the harbour since they have windows on two walls. We had keyed access to our floor. The rooms were well insulated but the keyed entry further ensured a quiet, peaceful evening. The dining room has an excellent view of the bay. A continental breakfast was included. It was buffet style with plenty of selections. Room service was limited if you wanted something light. Overall, we were most impressed with the cleanliness of the Inn and the courteous staff. There is evidence that everyone on staff is proud of their role in making the Inn a first class experience. There are no comparable Inns in the area in our opinion. For those not familiar with the area who have time to explore, do look into touring the various falls in the region. You will be impressed.

    I came here a few times for business. The staff were all fantastic, but the room was very dated. The hotel and the dining room were overpriced, so I would head elsewhere in town for dinner or lunch. It is a nice view to be on the bay. I would get a room on the first floor, if you have a lot to carry every day. The elevators are not convenient. There are laundry machines, if you so need. I was provided fresh pillows, sanitized phone receiver and remote control. That was a nice and comforting gesture.

    « Exceeded my expectations! »

    I have not stayed at many Best Westerns, but I was impressed with this one in Owen Sound. Stayed 2-nights as part of a wedding block of rooms (wedding was not at the hotel). Our room in the 3rd floor with 2 queen beds and a fireplace was fairly spacious and the bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and in good repair as well. Note that the 3rd floor is "private" and only accessible with your room key (not sure why this feature is there - might be to keep out the possible rowdy partiers and hockey players??). Unfortunately the weather was when when we had time to walk along the bay to enjoy the waterfront location. The included breakfast is make-your-own waffles, cereal, pastries, fruit, etc and quite good. You can also order off the menu. There did not seem to be much in terms of other food options within walking distance of the hotel (but we did not explore this much).

The front desk was great to assist me in getting around in Owen Sound. As it has an interesting street system, to say the least... Didn't get to the restaurant for a meal but did slip in for a morning coffee before departure. Found out we could have the breakfast as take out, though we just wanted coffee. Nice touch. Nice that they have an exercise room and hot tub.

    « Nice location »

    Friendly staff, clean rooms and an ok restaurant sum up this hotel. Had a lunch and breakfast in their dining room and both meals were above average taste wise for a hotel. A little noisy at night but that was due to a couple of weddings winding down. Pricey, but that is because it really is the only decent hotel in town.

    « Pretty location, excellent service »

    My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The service was excellent - from the registration, to room service and restaurant service. A continental breakfast is included in the rate and there was a good choice of items. You could also order a la carte and had a $5 voucher towards your breakfast. Restaurant serves lunch and dinner as well. Each room as a small fridge. The rooms were very clean - although the 110% clean slogan is silly. Walking to town is possible but not close. Excellent location base for exploring the waterfalls or golfing.

    « Excellent welcoming hotel »

    We spent a memorable 6 nights here visiting family and this hotel was the perfect base for our stay. The room was clean, large and a huge bed which was very comfortable. Breakfast is a choice of continental buffet or $5 off the a la crate choices with the most expensive item being $9.99 -$5 , so good value and huge portions. The spa area has lovely views of the bay and very clean with perfect temperatures. However, despite the good of above even better are all the staff - from our greeting at reception and throughout our stay every single staff member were excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would not hesitate to return on our next visit to Owen Sound. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so great.

    Beautiful room, view of lake, Quiet location with lakeshore walking path, Reprints of Group of Seven paintings in hallways, local artist's work on display too. Hotel looks new inside and out, sits on large grounds that are very well kept. Likely the best hotel in Owen Sound. First rate restaurant decor and breakfast.

    Every person was great, at reception, service, restaurant and the room was stellar with a great view of the bay. The restaurant is a must, as the foof is excellent with great service.

    Had a very pleasant stay a this hotel. Room was large, had views over the bay and very very clean. The flexibility to use breakfast vouchers for the buffet or towards a la carte options is a great idea and the quality was good. If you eat earlier, you do get more choice. Also used the whirlpool spa room which was lovely and warm. Restaurant dinner was also great although service was variable and portion sizes changed between 2 nights! The staff were mostly very friendly and welcoming. A very good hotel in a good location.

    Stayed at the hotel for a wedding. Felt the price was quite high for the average quality of the hotel. I was neither impressed nor disappointed.

    This hotel is very well kept up. All of the rooms are clean and fresh. Free Breakfasts on premise each day. If you can use the coupon for the buffet, they will take $5 off your regular meal. There is NO POOL here. The water is close by and a trail will take you downtown. Staff was helpful, but they should have told us NOT to walk the trail at night and not to walk back from the downtown area at night. There is nothing going on downtown except for a few restaurants in the evenings. Daily a different story. Farmers Market when we were there, and some nice shops to stop in, when you can find them. Most are empty. Take advantage to stay here and go to the Bruce Peninsula as we did. Its worth it.

    Great Hotel with a good restaurant and bar. I don't think I can say enough good things about this hotel. We stayed for 6 days. We were part of a pre-1916 car touring group. This was our base of operations. The staff was friendly, accommodating and eager to please. The restaurant had good food at reasonable prices. The bar and patio very accommodating. The location of this hotel is on Owen Sound in Georgian Bay. Spectacular views morning and night. A friend brought her paddle board and took to the waters each morning and some evenings. There was also a great walking path along the lake. The path passed a beautiful botanical garden maintained by the Owen Sound Garden Club. A beautiful and varied array of flowers, shrubs and grasses. I walked through several times. Beautiful. There is also a playground for the children. Nicely appointed. A very upbeat hotel. Ready to serve. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Everything was spot on- friendly, helpful reception staff, great service in the restaurant at breakfast, and a great room.

    Best hotel that I ever stayed in in Ontario, Canada. From the time we checked in for our 2 night stay till we left everything was perfect. Loved the freshly baked cookies. Hotel friendly and professional. We had room 201, simply the best room in the hotel. Modern decor, spotless and the best view of the bay. I booked a room with the bayview and ended up with a beautiful suite. Leather furniture, like new, modern pictures, tv, window treatment and a bed so comfortable. Amazing room. Loved the breakfast option available. We had complimentary breakfast included. First morning we ordered of the menu, and paid the difference from the continental breakfast. The voucher is worth $5.00 off the menu, great deal. Second morning we had the continental breakfast which we enjoyed. Loved the coffee and the staff working we amazing and friendly.

    Stayed here for two nights this past weekend with my parents. Check-in went smoothly with friendly service. Our room was nice, spacious, and cool (which was great during hot July days). Our favourite part was using the whirlpool with floor to ceiling views of the bay while we were in it. Nothing like watching the sunset over water while relaxing. The restaurant's food was delicious - breakfast both days was some of the best I've had. Nothing overly fancy, but really good. The hotel was a great base point for us to explore Sauble Beach and the gorgeous local waterfalls one day. I'd highly recommend staying here. We will be back for sure!

    « There are some issues »

    The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The view was the parking lot. My biggest beef is being treated like a second class guest. The bar/restaurant was unavailable on the day of arrival due to a reservation by a wedding party that essentially took over the whole hotel for the duration of our stay. The patio was booked, all the window - front tables were reserved on day 2. If this wedding party was paying a premium for all this attention I might understand why the rest of us were left to fend for ourselves. However, I think my money is as good as theirs but I had to look elsewhere for service. So beware if you should happen to book during wedding season. You may not get everything you think you should have access to.

    « Very Nice Hotel, good view but no pool (Whirlpool and Therapy Pool/Hot Tub can substitute) »

    This Best Western is a very nice hotel, my room has a good view of trees and grass, free wifi is very good, free parking is also good. If you look at the picture, you might see a pool and a hot tub. The "pool" is a whirlpool that is small, warm and shallow. The "hot tub" is warmer than the whirlpool, smaller but the same depth. There were no lifeguards or staff members in the whirlpool and there are no lights in the room so it does get a little dark after sun goes down. The bathroom is in good condition and has some modern equipment. The fitness centre is small but does have good equipment. The bed is comfy and the TV is pretty good as well. The drawers have a natural pull when you close them. The Continential Breakfast is good. Who ever owns this location, must be into cleaning a lot, which is a good thing, but for a price. We paid $200 dollars because we were "desperate" for a room "close" to Tobermory and Collingwood.

The staff went way way past expectations and helped me to get a room when I really needed an extra night. They great me every time I walk in and take the time to talk. They really do care. That is what separates this BW from so many others I have stayed at. It is the best run and friendliest one I know. I really can't thank them enough.

We ate dinner in the restaurant, the food was outstanding.The service was great! The restaurant was pretty busy, but the staff seemed to run a tight ship.

    « Clean and got the job done »

    We needed a place to stay for one night while in town for business. The location of this hotel is nice because it has a lovely path right along the water but if you want something walkable to amenities, there are others that would be a better choice. By car, there are many options close by. The room was clean (but small) and check in was quick. We needed a late check out but they insisted noon was the latest we could check out - we were very disappointed to find out that another person we spoke to was given a 1 pm check out for the same day -not sure why we could not get the same. The continental breakfast requires tickets that they give you at check in. We had 3 people staying in our room and were only given 2 tickets - I am not sure why. We did not bother to ask and one of us just did not have breakfast. This was the first time I have stayed in a hotel where I could hear the neighbours talking through the wall. They were not being loud at all but you could hear them with little difficulty, so if you are a light sleeper, you may want to keep this in mind. Overall, it was a clean and efficient place to stay with some nice amenities in a lovely location - but a bit pricey - but I am sure that price is dictated by supply and demand. If I was returning to the area I would probably stay here again.

The only thing I didn't like was their options in complimentary breakfast were very limited. Usually best western has better breakfast with more options.

    « Okay »

    When we checked in we were told we were at the best hotel in Owen Sound...maybe but that doesn't mean much. We found the room itself to be very clean, although amenities were poor, like worst toilet paper ever (thought I was in Eastern Europe) and the towels thin as can be. That said the public areas weren't very clean. The elevator had the same garbage on the floor in the morning as the previous night, the public washroom by the restaurant really needed a cleaning. This is supposed to be a non smoking hotel but people just smoke by the windows which open in their rooms and they go outside by the staircase, smoke and then it goes all thru the hallways. Staff were made aware but they don't say anything to those that are smoking. If you go on a night when the place is full of hockey fans then it's a rowdy noisy place. The breakfast was very limited-they try to get you to upgrade to order off the menu. There was very little fruit, for instance never a decent banana...one was there but rotten one morning, next morning one was there but frozen, and there was only ever one. For protein there was cold hard boiled eggs and that was it, so it was barely passable for a breakfast. The pool is different, (it's two hot tubs really)there is no swimming pool and the room is so small that it's uncomfortable if other guests are in it. There is a nice view from the pool room. I really felt that this place was overpriced, it seems to charge more because it has corporate clients come and that's what keeps them afloat, but really it was too much for what you get.

    I often head up to Owen Sound to spend time at the waterfalls and enjoy the local walkways by the water. The Best Western Inn On The Bay has some great suites that look out onto Georgian Bay. Just steps from the inn there is a walkway that goes both north and south along the shore with some nice areas to stop, rest and enjoy a sunset. I appreciate this inn for the breakfast buffet that's included in the room fee as well as the relaxed atmosphere. In the summer you can enjoy your meals at the outside patio, beside the water.

    « Meh, can't say we loved it. »

    We went for a weekend, and it cost way too much for what you get. The rooms were nice, but done cheaply to look expensive, and it really didn't pull it off. Small too. We got a king luxury suite and it was a king sized cupboard. I can say it was clean, and we appreciate that for sure. Breakfast was paid for to a point, but if you wanted more than the cheap "days inn" style of breakfast, you had to pay. In Owen Sound, it is the only choice for a decent hotel, but it barely makes the mark.

    Stayed her as part of a leisure/business trip. My wife and I have stayed at a few different properties in Owen Sound and this is by far the best in town. However, be prepared to spend a premium for a hotel that while clean and well staffed is quite expensive for what it is. There is ample free parking and the front desk staff is very welcoming and efficient. The hotel amenities were quickly but thoroughly explained to us and we were in our room in less than 5 minutes. Despite being on the ground floor (rm 114) we did not hear much noise from neighbours. There were a couple of people yelling in the hallway at one point but other than that the room was quite quiet. Everything in the room was functional and there are ample power outlets. The furnishings are in reasonable shape but quite dated. We found the bed to be on the firm side but that's a personal preference. There was no view to speak of from our room but we hadn't requested one and only used the hotel for sleep. A huge negative for me is the stability and speed of the wifi. It frequently cut out and all but the siplest of web pages were very slow to load. Overall the property is decent, functional and people are friendly. You won't marvel at the luxury (unless you've stayed somewhere else in Owen Sound). I still think the hotel is over-priced but obviously people, including us, pay what they want.

    « Last minute "Staycation"... Highly recomended »

    We had been at this hotel 5 or 6 years ago and were happy with the service then. We decided on short notice to "use some points" and go see the "NORTHERN LIGHTS" of Owen Sound. Highly recommended! Go for a ride in a horse drawn carriage around the lights in the town. We were very pleased that our room was overlooking the river...what a pleasant surprise when we were just using "points". We used the credit, forgoing the complimentary "continental breakfast" and got "The BEST eggs benedict" yet, in the restaurant/lounge.

    « Bravo, you treated us like paying customers using our BW Points »

    We often go to this location because of the wonderful staff and facilities. This time we used our BW points and were treated just like paying customers - hmm, Royalty! Yes, this location is just the best for friendly staff and great accommodations! Enjoyed the location of our room - near the hot tub/sauna. We had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant on site. Wow, great food! Seafood Thermidor and Lamb Sirloin were our choices and we weren't disappointed. Katie, our server was great! We actually had Katie as our server for breakfast too. Yummy Eggs Benedict. Dedicated staff. Great chefs with great food. Front desk staff were great! Gave us info on the hotel & possible upcoming snowstorm. We'll be back next year.

    « Owen Sound In November »

    This is an average Best Western but it is too far from down town to walk. The complimentary breakfast was below par, however the staff services in this hotel was excellent They appear to really enjoy working here. The rooms are fine the beds are great and the internet is fast and worked very well. it was over priced for November and this location.

    « Would stay here again for business or vacation - some tips in review »

    Was here for a conference and enjoyed the hotel. Most important to me is that a hotel be clean and in good condition - and this hotel is both. Phones and tv remote controls came clean and wrapped. The service staff for the conference were excellent - and even though they were serving a lot of people at once they had no problem with special requests. I have a very restricted diet and forgot to call ahead with a request - the chef prepared a good meal for me at the last minute. The next day when everyone else was eating buffet the server came up to me in advance and made some suggestions about food the kitchen would prepare for me. The bed was comfortable - although the pillows were large, and when I called down to the front to see if there was a smaller pillow or a feather pillow they had neither. Tips: * get a room on the lake side * splurge on a room with a hot tub * rooms with a fireplace were a bit bigger than rooms without fireplace * bring your own pillow if you don't like big pillows * bring walking shoes, there's a nice trail by the lake * there's lots of nature activities to do in this area - and also, for a blast from the past, Owen Sound has a drive in

    Super friendly staff, nice and clean rooms, comfy beds and great restaurant in the hotel and nearby. Pool is a little small but for business travel it's perfect for relaxing. Rooms are also fairly sound proof. There is also a walking trail behind the hotel along the water's edge.

    « Definitely Recommend »

    We stayed at this hotel for one night on October 18th to allow for an early trek to Tobermory on October 19th. Check in was quick, and the room was very comfortable (King Size Room) with somewhat of a separate sitting area and looking out at the water. The service in the restaurant was amazing and they have a wide variety of food to choose from. We will definitely stay again the next time in the area.

    « Mini Summer Vacation »

    Took my family to Owen Sound for a mini summer vacation. We booked this hotel because of its location and to earn loyalty points. I called early to see if they were ready for us and our room was available for an early check in. Our room was on a private floor where you needed a key to access the rooms, this was a bonus! Housekeeping was working on a room across from ours and I complimented her on how well she had cleaned our room, it looked fantastic. I was very impressed with our view of the bay and we had a great stay. I would definitely stay here again ??

    « Pleased with the room, the view, and the price. »

    Lovely location! Clean rooms, pleasant staff, very comfortable bed. Odd little hot tub in the common area, uncomfortable if more than a couple of people in it. During the daylight, the walk along the paved pathway by the water is absolutely lovely! At night, it was sketchy; portions of the path were in pitch darkness and industrial zones.

    « Nice hotel, right on the lake. Breakfast was included in the price »

    We stayed at this hotel with another couple so we shared one room and split the price. Check in was quick, and the staff was pleasant. Breakfast coupons are included and so is the parking. We had car haulers and there was plenty of parking. We will stay here again if in the area.

    « Awesome dog friendly spot »

    I called last minute travelling with my Golden retriever. From initial point of contact to my departure the next day, every one I came in contact was very friendly and very helpful! The hotel was very very clean and quiet, even with a wedding going on! The spot is ideally located with a lovely walk nearby! I ordered in room service (of course dogs not welcome in restaurant), riser ice was quick, food was great! Beds were comfy, overall excellent hotel experience!
